Tip #1 : Pan with Care
Panning too fast across the frame might create jarring artefacts in your videos and make it a bit disorienting for your viewers. I have done this mistake so many times, trying to pan across a wide panorama in a few seconds (normally I keep my time-lapse clips to about 10 or 12 seconds). And the results have been disappointing.
I now consciously make an effort to restrain myself while doing pan/tilt movement
s. Trying to pan across just a small section of the scenery in interesting ways rather than trying to pan across the entire landscape.
The experience is similar to my initial photography days when I moved from a wide angle zoom to a normal (50mm) prime. With the zoom lens I was always going wide, trying to fit everything in the frame. But with the fixed prime, I have had to be more creative with my framing and composition. And it made me a better photographer as a result. Hopefully the same thing will happen with my time-lapse videos as well.
